It was a frustrating loss to the Utah Jazz Friday night no matter how encouraging. It had a combination of bad nights from Jordan Clarkson, D’Angelo Russell, and Julius Randle and horrendous officiating throughout the night. Most discouraging was the news that Brandon Ingram had to leave the game because he felt a “twinge” in his knee.

Ingram later returned to the game, however he was held out of the 2nd half entirely. It was unknown at the time if it was for precautionary reasons or if there was a serious issue.

On Saturday, some good news came from the Lakers as practice began in Oklahoma City.

It seems that Brandon Ingram not only felt better, but he was able to practice today. It is still unclear whether he will play tomorrow against the Oklahoma City Thunder. They will reassess him tomorrow before the game to determine if he will play, or if on limited minutes. Regardless, the news is certainly encouraging, considering when you hear the words “non-contact knee injury” usually means something devastating.

Jose Calderon listed as probable

More Laker news came out of todays practice as Jose Calderon practiced fully. After suffering a calf injury in the preseason, Calderon had to sit out for the first two games of the season. Jose Calderon was officially listed as probable for Sunday’s game.

Calderon’s leadership and shooting will be a big boost to the 2nd unit. Marcelo Huertas has been the primary backup, though he has not been great at it.
